This Garcinia fruit is 90% sweet and I want to get it identified as many people are growing it around the globe from my seeds.

Can't say whether it is dioecious as the fruits are obtained from a tree in the deep forest .
Mr Chandramohan told me it to be Garcinia cowa

Roy,

Nice pictures, from the pics it looks sweet.  Has that shiny look when the fruit has a nice brix level.
Grow mainly fruits, vegetables, and herbs.

You need a brix refractometer to find the brix. Brix is the sugar content of a liquid solution. You place drops of the juice from fruit on the brix refractometer diode area to get a reading.
Grow mainly fruits, vegetables, and herbs.
